Ever wonder how Chuck Palahniuk came up with the idea for Fight Club’s secret society of recreational fighters? Or how a giant wooden “man” ended up on fire, inspiring one of the world’s most radical gatherings? Welcome to the Cacophony Society, an underground group of pranksters whose culture-jamming antics have shaped the contemporary zeitgeist for the past three decades. Now, from Flash Mobs and SantaCon to groups like Improv Everywhere and the Yes Men, new generations of instigators are taking a page out of the Cacophony book, driving pranks and events with social media tools. Join us as Society founders, celebrated members and those they’ve influenced take us through the origins of Cacophony, the importance of play in adult life, and how to kick-start your own culture.
